Local residents will be voting in the local council elections and mayoral referendum on Thursday 3 May.
There are 28 seats up for election, which is one third of Sheffield City Council. Crosspool lies in the Crookes ward, where there are six candidates standing:
- Rob Frost, Liberal Democrat

- Alec Hayward, UKIP (UKIP manifesto, PDF, 7.1MB)
- John Hesketh, Independent
- James Hoyes, Conservative (Sheffield Conservatives website)
- Abdul Khayum, Labour (Sheffield Labour Party website)
- Amy Mack, Green
(Green Party manifesto, PDF, 90KB)
If any of these candidates read this, it would be great if they could comment below to sum up why Crosspool residents should vote for them.
Voters will also be deciding they would like the council to be run, either by a leader who is an elected councillor chosen by a vote of the other elected councillors (how the council is run now) or by a mayor who is elected by voters.
